How Not To Spend Christmas Eve

I have commented several times that the "rain" in Sacramento is not truly "rain". After dealing with rain on our recent visit to Texas I'm thinking the rain in Sacramento is much better to deal with - at least I don't need to worry about the crazies driving.
Jim, Hagen and I headed out Christmas Eve to finish up some shopping. I was driving, as I was more familiar with the area. It was pouring rain and somewhat foggy so people for the most part were driving slowly on the freeway. I did notice a certain Nissan 350Z in the far left lane going a little faster then everyone but didn't think much until she was suddenly hydroplaning right into the driver/passenger side. Fortunately no one was hurt. Just makes me mad that we were sent spinning across the freeway and almost got hit again. Even if you are a safe driver you have to watch out for the idiots.
It also gave me another opportunity to discuss driving strategies with Hagen.


  1. Glad no one was hurt. I've had that happen, too. You see it coming and there's nothing to do but clutch the wheel.

    Happy New Year. We miss you in rainy Texas.

  2. OMG! I am so glad that no one was hurt. I do understand your frustration, though. Sorry about your car.
